The IUCN World Conservation congress will take place from 11 to 19 June in Marseille, France. Hurry up to register if you have planned to attend some of it, since the early bird rate that proposes lower fees is only valid until 11 March.

The IUCN Congress is the largest marketplace for conservation and sustainable development science, practice and policy, and in this “super year” for decisions on nature, it will be a key platform for shaping nature conservation worldwide….

MedPAN will of course take part in the congress to promote and defend Mediterranean MPA interests but also, with other MPA manager networks around the world, to promote the role such networks to contribute to the effectiveness of MPAs. We’ll report regularly during the congress on the matters of interest for the network.
